*N-CHEAT"! Holder DoJ Won't Seek To Overturn Siegelman Conviction

Via OldAmerican Century:
Holder Not Reviewing Siegelman Prosecution
By Keith Perine | April 9, 2009 4:03 PM

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is moving to revamp Justice Department procedures in the wake of the prosecutorial debacle in the Ted Stevens case. But Holder said today that he is not reviewing the Justice Department's prosecution of former Alabama Gov. Donald Siegelman on corruption charges, nor other corruption cases involving Alaskan officials.

The House Judiciary Committee has been probing allegations that the Siegelman case was politically motivated by the Bush administration. Siegelman, a Democrat, was convicted in 2006.

"I don't have any reviews under way at this point, but I always want to ensure that the Justice Department acts in a way that is consistent with the long tradition of this great department," Holder said.

Holder, who has been sounding out attorneys throughout the department's Criminal Division, is preparing to announce some changes in the department's procedures for such prosecutions, however.
Dare one speculate that the reason that Siegelman's prosecution is unassailable is that it convicted a Democrat, and Holder--the corpoRat tool of the Obamanistas--is too gutless to take on the Pukes over a matter that might be "divisive?"

Meanwhile, the fucker's pursuing prosecutions against California medical marijuana dispensers, even though "thePrez" forswore such actions during the Campaign, iirc. He's not doing it without permission/encouragement from the TOP top...
